A new app, Liquor Limo recently debuted in Denver. The app, for Android and iOS devices, allows users to either have their liquor, beer and wine selections ready for pickup or to schedule an order for delivery. For delivery orders over $50, there’s no delivery charge either.
The app is ideal for someone holding a party that doesn’t have time to go to the store to pick up the liquor beforehand. Liquor Limo partners with liquor stores that have more than three years of delivery service. The company includes members of the team that founded Baroness Wines in 2001, which became the largest independent wine, beer and spirits distribution company in Colorado. The company was sold to a division of Berkshire Hathaway in 2014.
The app-based delivery service has 15 retail partners in Colorado that can service customers in Avon, Boulder, Carbondale, Colorado Springs, Denver, Durango, Fort Collins, Frisco, Greeley, Montrose, Pueblo, Stapleton, Thornton and Vail. The company already is expanding to additional markets and states.
"Through the app, customers in Denver and across Colorado, can receive scheduled and professional liquor delivery, while still supporting their local neighborhood retailers," explains Kevin Byrne, Liquor Limo COO.
If users can’t find what they’re looking for at a store, the company offers a Replica Recommendation Engine based on what it calls "Copy Cat DNA Matches" -- which it says is testing done to find the best substitutes when a particular spirit or brew isn’t available. “Our proprietary Replica Recommendation Engine enables users to explore vast retailer inventories, and discover new beverages based on the chemical fingerprint of their current likes and dislikes,” Byrne explains.
The recommendation engine has evaluated more than 15,000 beverages and spirits. It can either match for unavailable spirits and beverages or make recommendations for similar but less expensive alternatives.
The app requires users to have a valid photo ID showing that they are 21 years old or older. They can then search store inventories for similar tasting beverages, often at a fraction of the price.
